PARIS—The word ‘’Juden’’ (Jews in German) was tagged on the window of a franchise of “Bagelstein” in Paris, a reminiscence of anti-Semitic inscriptions targeting Jewish businesses during the so-called ”Night of Cristal” (”Kristallnacht”) in 1938 in Nazi Germany.
CRIF, the umbrella representative group of Jewish institutions in France, shared the picture on twitter. ‘’Indignation and anger after the discovery yesterday of a vile anti-Semitic tag on the shop window of a Bagelstein shop. An act that recalls the darkest hours of history,’’ the group wrote.
A member of the French Parliament for the ruling ‘’La République en Marche’’ party, Elise Fajgeles called the tag ‘’unbearable’’ and made the connection with the yellow vests anti-government protest movement which was marked by several antisemitic incidents.
